the united states. libya sent more jihadists per capita to iraq to fight against american soldiers in a terrorist war than any other couny in the world. and benghazi was the capital of jihadism in libya. they had every reason to know that that is, that not only has been one of the most dangerous regions in the world for the united states, it is a more dangerous region now because they have the arsenals that muammar qaddafi used to have under lock and key. lou: we also are looking at a situation in which the administration now seems to be walking back its claims of spontaneous combustion. the idea that this silly, amateurish, anti-muslim movie, if you want to call it that, it is more a mockery of movie-making itself. >> right. lou: the idea that this is being pedaled almost unchallenged by the mainstream media. now the facts are beginning to come out. many of these facts were there, were there from last wednesday forward until now. >> righters the fact that we're not getting a straight answer from this administration and the idea that they can't give straight answers after the u.n.

, the precipitous retreat from iraq after we won and now it's an iranian satellite, equivocation in afghanistan. what you are seeing is the comprehensive collapse of obama's middle east policy and the administration is going to just stretch it out through november. cheryl: general shape of, i want to talk to you. >> this was not a preplanned or premeditated attack. what happened initially is that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video, people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. cheryl: colonel schaffer, you said that no, anybody with a military background know this was not some kind of spontaneous act. you don't take rocket propelled grenades to a protest outside the embassy. but she is the one that be administration put out as the face of this thread was that the right call? >> i think it is the right call for the administration regarding policy. as ralph said, they're trying to do anything that they can to either we have this. either she was lying on this at the bottom is it was a well orchestrated attack. let me be
david brooks asked the same question and wonders is it the iraq war veteran who goes to the va? is it the student getting a loan to go to college? is it the retiree on social security or medicare? and these charts from the tax policy center show who that 47% is. these are the people that don't pay federal income tax. in 2011 46.4% of households paid no federal income tax so romney is correct there. let's zero in on what that group is. turns out nearly two-thirds of that 47% did pay federal payroll taxes. now, what about the people who paid neither federal income tax nor payroll tax? of that small group, 10% of elderly and 7% are nonelderly earning under $20,000 a year. the truth is when romney says 47% are nontax paying free loaders, he's wrong. and many of those he considers free loaders, specifically retirees and white working close voters, fit the romney voter profile. ezra cline is a policy analyst for msnbc. joe klein. just to break this out and to show that of the people who don't pay federal income tax, two-thirds do pay payroll tax and two-thirds of the other one-third
